Padma Lakshmi demonstrates the everlasting power of the LWD, Jessica Alba is flirty in lace, and Blake Lively shines in silver. Here, the red carpet looks that gave us major wedding dress feels this week.

Padma Lakshmi Out and About in New York City: There truly are few pieces that are as classic as the little white dress. Naturally, we're a bit biased. It can be remixed in so many ways. Padma Lakshmi stepped out in the Big Apple in a classic LWD, flaunting her curves with long sleeves, a form-fitting silhouette, and fun flounce hem: the perfect piece for your engagement party. Red lips and matching red pumps gave the ensemble pops of color—you can use them as a chance to sport your favorite hue and give the look added flair.

Jessica Alba at The Honest Company Springtime in Paris Diaper Collection Launch: Jessica Alba is a "girl boss" in every sense of the word: she inspires us endlessly from her business sense to her fashion sense. She was the epitome of ladylike in a tea-length lace design from one of our favorite bridal-perfect brands, Brock Collection. This was the consummate getup for an outdoor bridal shower. Jessica's glossy hair and shiny Manolo Blahnik silver pumps were excellent accents, so the dress would look just as good with a sleek chignon and pretty sandals for a more casual moment.

Blake Lively at the State Dinner Honoring Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: A state dinner calls for the finest looks around—usually custom-made or couture. Not unlike your wedding gown right? As Ryan Reynolds hails from Canada, he got a coveted invite to one of the year's best events. Of course, wife Blake Lively came along! She's never anything short of stunning and she did not disappoint in a silver Ralph & Russo number. Complete with a plunging neckline, cutout shoulders, a tie-waist, and wrap silhouette, the dress screamed rehearsal dinner—as if we weren't already taking all of our fashion cues from Blake anyway.
